When Death Occurs Away From Home


Travel has become a way of life for many Americans whether its for business, family, a cruise or get-away vacation. When death occurs away from home, your family must deal with additional unexpected decisions and expenses. It’s difficult for a family to deal with the emotional and financial stress that the death of a loved one brings, but when the death occurs away from home, the loss is complicated by the need to bring the loved one back home. Most people don’t realize that the expense involved in transportation services can easily run from $1,500 to well over $15,000.

If your loved one dies in another country, the difficulty of arranging transportation can be very difficult and traumatic. This is all at a time when your family is already dealing with grief and distress. The Travel Plan, a service option provided by Inman Shipping Worldwide, is designed to give you an extra measure of protection. The plan is fully guaranteed and the peace of mind it creates will be priceless. One fee and one call guarantees your loved one will be returned if death occurs 100 miles or more away from home.
